I'm starting to get worried about DS. He has been eating paper like candy lately (Okay, maybe not candy, because he's never had it, but ykwim). One day last week, he ate an entire half of a birthday card. The next day, I found the booklet insert to his Wiggles CD, with a giant chunk chewed out of the corner. Today, he chew off the corner of a paperback book, about 20 pages in length. In the car, I can't give him board books anymore, because he just eats them the whole time.
Can someone please tell me if this is normal, or if I need to be worried about him having some kind of nutritional deficiency (or worse)? I had posted about this around a year ago, but at the time we just chalked it up to teething. He's older now, and has a lot of other options if it is teething. He's also eating so much of it, and that's what really has me concerned.
I'm also going to post about this in H&H, just in case...
